president obama and his engagement strategy because his readiness to talk to the enemy was in some ways one of the most distinguishing features of his presidential campaign and also of his time as president. reset with russia, reaching out to cuba, trying to negotiate with ron, trying to reach out to syria. this is an unusual form policy. a lot to offer some thoughts on how that every test on and where it is likely to head in the months ahead. so, for starters in trying to answer this question when and why peace breaks out i went back and just wait widely through history where longstanding rivals found their way to peace. they moved from india to amity. the earliest case i looked at is the foundation of switzerland in 1291 when three in what is today the alpine region, along enemies of its other forms when it became the swiss confederation. i look at the formation of the iroquois confederacy in upstate new york which was born in 1450 in the small town that still exists today. these five tribes came together. they had been killing each other and eating each of the literally for centuries. fr

you. >> reporter: thank you. megyn: there is this fox news alert. the obama administration has just announced that it will no longer defend the same-sex -- no, the defense of marriage act. they call it doma, defense of marriage act. president clinton signed it. it allows states to refuse to recognize same-sex unions from other states. it's been in place for more than a decade. the u.s. attorney general, eric holder, just announced that president obama does not believe the law is constitutional and neither does eric holder. they're no longer going to enforce the federal law that's on the books passed by congress, signed by president clinton, and still very much a law. joining me now on the phone to react to the breaking news is maggie gallagher. she's chairman of the national organization for marriage. maggie, this is stunning. president obama has made no secret of the fact that he doesn't like the defense of marriage act and yet they've also been open at the white house that while they would like to see it repealed, they know that the u.s. congress will not repeal the act. in the wa

about what the obama's administration is, at times they are saying mubarak they want him to transition out and now a special envoy that visits the region says not so fast. what are you hearing there? >> the message certainly has changed in flavor, perhaps in total to be quite honest. we just saw a special envoy frank lisner -- whirt ner, obama they want a full removal of mubarak. they say it's crucial that they stage the transition. dramatically different what we were hearing. he says he believes increasingly they will be an orderly transition to democracy. >> i therefore believe that president mubarak's continued leadership is critical, it's his opportunity write his own legacy. >> reporter: now speaking if munich, secretary of state hillary clinton has today said that the transition pro said led by omar suleiman must be supported. officials are quick to say she doesn't mean that there is any u.s. support for the vice president to have a new role in the new government come the elections that are planned for later this year. they are not trying to endorse anybody in particular but by s

some because late 2009 into early 2010 as obama's numbers were taking across-the-board on all the issues. one issue, barack obama had a plurality of support and approval on terrorism and national security. the question is this why did this politics happen when the reality everyone seems to be otherwise to answer that we have pat caddell and john mclaughlin. >> hi am not trusting with anything mechanical. >> you are setting me up for the fall. >> watching what is happening in egypt this could not be a more perfect panel. watching president obama reminds me of charlie brown and the football. every time you think he is gone he is back. the point joel just made that is important to discuss, we are here on behalf of secure america now organization when you go to their web site, in the same spirit of my friend richard dreyfuss who are am happy to see here. we are stunned by a lot of people for being here but the idea of this group is a grassroots to new group and grass-roots effort to developed -- to secure america, input into our political discourse the point joel just made. 9% of

[applause] >> thank you. well for somebody from the third century he looks very good. you completely blew my cover and i have to say a little bit more about my career as gregory donald in tom clancy's book. in my first visit to north korea in 2002, i was asked three questions by the north koreans. the first was, why is george w. bush so different from his fath
opposition figures to be executed. >>> the obama white house is keeping track of the big picture in the middle east and noting that every kun interest where we're seeing protests is a little different. we want to bring in our senior white house correspondent, ed henry. ed, what's the administration saying about the newest uprisings which are hard enough just to keep track of it. >> reporter: it is, candy, and it's interesting, jay carney, the new white house press secretary, the first briefing today and right out of the box he said the president is watching very close lit developments were you talking about, libya, bahrain, all through the middle east as well as north africa, but he was also very careful, jay carney was, to say what you just suggested which is as the president noted at his news conference yesterday, there is not a one-size-fits-all approach to these protests, that each country is different, and the administration is going to be careful not to dictate to each government about what to do here, but by the same token the administration is not shy about making sure to
, policy priorities, have been completely upset by this development. the obama administration came into office two years ago planning to work on israeli- palestinian peace, planning to engage with iran to try to prevent the emergence of iran as a nuclear power and frankly, it had no interest in what it saw as the failed freedom agenda of george bush. what we now see is that these demands for change in the region for democratic governments in the region have forced a's selves onto obama a agenda. he has chosen wisely to get on the right side of this and to be in favor of the spread of democracy and human rights in the region. i think the administration is playing catch up. they are trying very much to show they were on top of these issues all along and were in favor of these things all along, but to be honest, there was not much attention and much priority given to these issues to what was happening inside arab countries and change that might be coming from inside arab countries. there was not much attention given to that at all. over the last couple of years. the two other issues t

's interview with christiane amanpour, because he was trying to make out that although president obama has asked him to go now, that will descend the country into chaos. i mean it seems a pretty ironic statement given what we're witnessing today. we've seen scenes chaotic to put it mildly. >> i mean for 30 years mubarak's systemic policy has been to prevent any kind of a secular reasonable opposition so that he can stay. if it's not for me we'll have chaos in egypt and at times american officials have kind of believed that, but in the last few days i think that has lost all credibility because we had a peaceful secular largely secular democracy movement that was actually quite well organized and certainly very peaceful and then kind of erupted in chaos in the last couple of days because the president has sent his thugs to try to crush that movement. >> it's 4 a.m. on friday morning in cairo. i wish i could show you live pictures from tahrir square, but there are no cameras left there to record what's going on. it remains a sinister mystery. anderson, we just heard from nick there. he's fee

this situation moves from president obama talking about change now, president mubarak talking about change in september. is president obama powerless to actually make that happen? >> well, let's be clear that these are very fluid and dynamic events. i think what we've seen happen over the course of the past many days, quite honestly, are events that many people have not seen -- nobody's seen in their lifetime. i think you heard the president last night pretty clearly. i'm certainly here to say that the conversation the president had with president mubarak was direct. it was frank. it was candid. and without getting into exactly what was said, i think the message the president delivered clearly to president mubarak was that the time for change had come. >> i guess i'm still trying to get at the core question of what the president, this president can do about that. >> well, i think that -- i think change in all of these instances, what we've seen transpire over the course of many days in cairo and egypt has taken place as a result of change that's needed to happen from within the country. yo

, alabama. good morning. caller: good morning. obama and the democrats would rather borrow and spend rather than tax and spend. it is tearing the state to up. in 2010, the analysts published data saying the entire transaction is -- $5.60 trillion is how much is met. 1.75 -- $1.75 trillion in debt this year. $2 trillion a year in medicare tax because medicare is 50% unfunded. they treating -- it should be increased from 2% to 4% because of the shortfall and another 2% to cover the eight years of debt. that would be 6% on the wages. and on top of that, we have the fannie mae and freddie mac welfare mortgages. people do not have enough money to pay taxes, but they get a welfare mortgage? 50% are the people that cannot even pay tax. and that is $2 trillion per year. add that up and you are coming up with more debt every year in the united states than ever when makes. host: thanks for your call this morning. state senator julie lassa is six months pregnant. she is also the mother of a six and a 3-year-old. last year she endured a grueling race to replace retiring rep. that story this morning fro
